|Subject:||Best Practice Server Backup|

I'm attempting to implement a backup scheme. I have 4 Windows Server 2008
Servers with Hyper-V that each have X number of VM's and 1 Window Server
2003 server with Altiris installed.. Through an application called Alitiris
I'm scheduling wbadmin to run on each of the server and backup to a SAN
attached to the Altiris.
Due to some new information I've had to rethink my backup strategy and I'm
trying to get some information.
1) Is Hyper-V configurations included in a system state backup? or do I need
do a backup of the C:\ to get that information?
2)Currently I'm just backing up the data volumes if I want to capture the
systemstate and the data jobs does it have to be two different jobs or can I
combine the backupsystemstate command and the includeE:\ ?
3)From the point of restoration if I do a backup of C: & E: and then the
host dies. Do I just need to re-install the base O/S and the restore will
put all additional apps & settings back?
